Lawmakers Consider New Ignition Interlock Law in Washington State

Those suspected of drinking and driving may be facing tougher penalties even before entering a plea in court.

Currently, the law states that anyone suspected of drinking and driving will face the vehicle driven being impounded for 12 hours.
